Partly correct, e.g., competing with free.  But unless Apple gets back into releasing applications for other platforms (and iTunes for Windows is what got me to buy my first Mac), they can't "supplant" anybody in the general computing world.Native saves to MS formats, though, could make them a force in all the markets they are in - and iDevices are way ahead of Android in the Enterprise market. I know I don't use Pages and Numbers because so many people I exchange files...
Yup.  A big German retailer (Metro AG) owned it. And if they bargained or fought much, it was never reported:http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-19108952 And now - after a dispute with BSkyB (Britain based satellite TV provider), they've also given up SkyDrive (now OneDrive). http://www.liveside.net/2013/07/31/microsoft-gives-up-the-skydrive-name-to-bskyb-now-what-2/ Just more examples of how in so many ways during the Ballmer years MS went from world-beating behemoth to...
Rich with irony for sure......I couldn't believe Win 8 launched without any key MS Windows apps in the first place, at least Office, and, still lacking them years later, why there's any confusion about why Win 8 has been such a failure - for this reason alone."Hello, you billion plus Windows users. Migrate to our new platform now en masse.  Of course there's nothing you've been using Windows for that you can do with the whole "modern" part (btw, we screwed the pooch by...
 By George I think that's it - the next place the competition isn't:  Apple's bringing back the shoe phone... ...and it will be recharged by the compression of the heel as we walk....
Or by harvesting body heat - we radiate a fair amount of thermal energy from our metabolism. The percentage of people wearing watches has declined significantly over the last 10 years. That's just a fact. I know I'm happy to be liberated from mine since I have a device that does that and so much more near me all the time. http://today.yougov.com/news/2011/05/05/brother-do-you-have-time/So it would take a bunch of tangible, added benefits to get something back on my wrist. ...
Yep. That I can see....
I like the way you don't think....(and if I'm wrong about how far-fetched this is, I'll eat the pixels in this bit of snark) And here's Apple's problem: Lately it seems like they're playing touch rules while GOOG's playing tackle...  ...Also even granting the time between the iMac and the iPod, and then the iPhone and then the iPad, THIS team has to give the world a sense they still have more magical golden eggs to lay even with the chief goose gone. It's been a good while...
Another reason is that Apple gave "lower guidance" going forward - which the article should have been updated to reflect.  THAT always spooks investor's attitudes toward what's been "hyper growth company."Apple's R&D spending as a percentage of revenue has always been (sometimes far) lower than most of its peers. Many apologists will tell you this is because their efforts are "smarter and more focused."  While I think it's more that they've been caught up in their own...
Actually they don't. (And as another poster noted the person you were originally quoting got the thread off by using "mechanical zoom" to refer to true "optical zoom" - as opposed to digital.  Maybe a better analogy for our times is digital vs "analog zoom.")  In any event, true optical or analog zooming changes a number a variables in the photography process that are different than what walking toward or away from a scene accomplishes - e.g., the relationship between...
 LoL, the name IS the advertisement.....
